In 2007 the boards of trustees of the Lagrange Development Corporation (LDC) and the NorthRiver Development Corporation (NRDC) entered into a strategic alliance to better serve the needs of the 30,000 residents of ONE Village. The new umbrella organization, called United North or UN, employs the administrative staffs of both organizations. In 2010 both community development corporations formally merged into one entity called United North.
By forming United North, both organizations have increased their capacity for real estate development, reduced their reliance on government and foundation grants, and can now begin to attract additional resources to both neighborhoods.
After a series of community meetings to develop and implement a Quality of Life Plan for north Toledo, our community has decided we will now be known as ONE (Olde North End) Village. The ONE Village label represents a new beginning for United North, our neighborhood residents, and our many local businesses. ONE Village is not only our new name, but also the new image we want to project and that we want all of Toledo to recognize and embrace when referring to our neighborhood.
A group of dedicated volunteers representing various ONE Village organizations and businesses is also working to implement the Quality of Life Plan. The ONE Village Action Committee (OVAC) has been an active participant in many of the projects and tasks undertaken by United North including the completion of the new Woodward High School, the reactivation of the community policing program, new playground equipment at Wilsono Park, and the Force Within's community service projects.
